This is the first time I’ve made these. In the past I thought I mightn’t like them but they are delicious. I know what I’ve been missing.
I got the recipe from one of my favourite websites: http://www.weightloss.com.au/healthy-recipes/lunch-recipes/zucchini-fritters-recipe.html. They have a lot of healthy recipes.
I came across a recipe on a website last yesterday while looking for something different. I’ve been in a bit of a rut lately when it comes to recipes. I haven’t liked any of my old recipes. The recipe inspired me to make this.
I carrot, thinly sliced
1/2 onion, grated
50g beans, sliced
1/2 red capsicum, thinly sliced
2 tbs ketcap manis (Indonesian soy sauce)
1 tbs soy sauce
2 cloves garlic
While the fettucine is cooking, lightly fry the vegies then put aside on a plate. Meanwhile cook the prawns for 1-2 mins on each side. Once cooked, add the vegies back in and cook until they are warmed up. Add the sauces. Warm through. When the fettucine is cooked, drain then put it back in the saucepan. Add the vegies and stir through to combine.
This is one of those recipes where you can use vegies in your fridge that are getting near their end. I made it for lunch and chopped zucchini, carrot, onion and threw in some feta cheese and sundried tomatoes.
It’s quick and easy to make too.
After chopping the vegies, put them in a bowl. Add 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese, 5 lightly beaten eggs, 1 teaspoon of mixed herbs and salt and pepper to taste. Mix everything together and pour into a greased pie dish. Bake in a moderate oven for 45 mins or until lightly browned. Serve with salad.
I made this Choc Mousse Cake last night for a friend’s birthday today. As it turned out it probably wasn’t the best night for making a chocolate mousse. It was a really warm day in Melbourne yesterday and my kitchen was still around 30 degrees at 8pm. The mousse wouldn’t thicken. I had to wrap the cake and put it in the fridge to set. Having faith that it had all worked out, I brought it to work without unwrapping to check it. When I opened it up it looked good. It looked perfect when I sliced it to share with my friend and colleagues.
The recipe is really just a mix of other recipes. I made a basic chocolate cake, the mousse and then just layered the cake and spread the mousse in between the two layers and on top.
